“I love the lightweight division and definitely would hate to see him take the title and call it a career BUT this isn’t golf or football. These guys risk a lot every time they step into the octagon against other elite fighters. Seeing as he has a family, I’d be switching over to hot sauce selling too haha” – Zach : Poirier's Louisiana Style Hot Sauce - Single Bottle : Grocery  & Gourmet Food

“He has a lot of money at the moment. He needs the belt only. After that.. Kiss and say good bye,” – Basir

“Thank your Daddy Conor. You’ll be able to retire with plenty in the bank account,” – PReston

“Soo we will see him for another 10 year,” – Yiaroslav

“Don’t blame him. Just made 10 million off the Conor fight. Doesn’t need to get punched in the face anymore. He can coach or do analyst if he wants to be in the sport still. Good for him,” – Troy

“The fans want a title defending champion not someone who will be champ then retire that’s not right,” – Andrew
